2.0 out of 5 stars Just the wrong film for me, 11 Sept. 2013
This review is from: We're The Millers - Extended Cut [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Putting together a drug dealer (after spelling it out it's supposed to be okay because the guy "only" deals small time and NOT to children!!), a stripper, a pierced and aggressive girl who may or may be living rough, and a perfectly normal young guy who is supposed to be weird because he has never had a girlfriend.

When these four are put together on a road trip to Mexico to collect some drugs, this had potential to be a really funny film. However it is ruined by the fact the script misses out on so many chances for great gags and some genuine interaction between the characters.

None of the characters were really very nice apart from the young guy whose mobile, twisting eyebrows should have had their own credit. Jennifer Aniston as the stripper is frankly too old and as sexy as cold rice pudding, there is just far too much unnecessary foul language and "humour" is derived from the extremely lazy way of bad language, "giving the finger," and as much shock value as possible eg the shock of a teenager still being a virgin!! The wife of the "straight" couple they hook up with would just never have come out with the unpleasant things the unconvincing, clunky script has her say, and I'm sure several of the cast must have been secretly cringing and wondering what they had got themselves in to.

There was virtually no development between the characters and we are supposed to believe that they all bonded - hm.

The first time I laughed was the outtakes at the end.

Shame, in the right hands, ie someone who doesn't think foul language equals humour, and was prepared to go further than superficial platitudes in relationships, this could have been really funny.

Partly it's my fault, I made a mistake choosing to see this film, I'm sure lots of people will find it hilarious. And the outtakes are great, if you can wait that long
